Mid-Century Modern Styling Meets Engaging, Expressive, High-Fidelity Sound: Leak CDT CD Transport Features Slot-Loading Mechanism, Read-Ahead Buffering, and Dedicated Power Supply
The Leak CDT CD Transport offers gorgeous, Mid-Century Modern aesthetics, combined with cutting-edge technology that delivers engaging sound. The vintage styling evokes stereo's halcyon days, but this elegant, reliable disc player is all about the present. It signifies the glorious return of a British manufacturer whose high-end roots date back to the 1930s.
A perfect stylistic and aural match with the Leak Stereo 130 integrated amplifier, CDT uses a smooth slot-loading mechanism with read-ahead buffering to help reproduce the data on your discs in a high-fidelity manner that will encourage long listening sessions. The transport itself arrives isolated within its own electromagnetically shielded enclosure and touts a dedicated power supply. In addition, the digital clock sees control by way of a temperature-compensated crystal oscillator that minimizes jitter and ensures precision, purity, and detail. To address modern digital needs, CDT also supports file playback from USB storage devices.
Most importantly, CDT brings the classic Leak sound – engaging, detailed, refined, with excellent timing and expressiveness – back to market after a multi-decade absence. It's a welcome rebirth. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
